Waterfront: the Great Birrarung Parkland by Boat Past Event

Presented by Centre for Architecture | Open House Melbourne, Birrarung Council and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung Cultural Heritage Aboriginal Corporation.
Loys Paddock – Birrarung

Following film screenings and a panel discussion that explore and reflect upon our relationship with the Birrarung, join a boat tour of the proposed site for the Great Birrarung Parkland. This tour aims to increase public awareness of the River’s issues, advocate for the River, and bring our community together around a proposed vision for the Parkland.

Access Requirements: Passengers must be able to manage stairs to board and disembark the vessel on their own or be assisted by their carers only, as boat staff are not permitted to assist.

This event forms part of ‘Waterfront: The Great Birrarung Parkland’ series – a three-part public program including film, panel discussion and a boat tour all focused on the Yarra River as one integrated living entity, to advocate for Indigenous rights and values and for a more ecologically balanced future Melbourne. The series aims to highlight the design driven regeneration of the River corridor between Punt Road, Cremorne and Wallen Road, Burnley.

Waterfront is proudly presented by Centre for Architecture Victoria | Open House Melbourne, in partnership with Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and East Gippsland Shire Council. 

Speakers include:

Wurundjeri members, Birrarung Council, Melbourne Water, Yarra River Keepers + others
